Tamworth girls on national stage

TAMWORTH BJP Physie club will have six representatives at the  national finals.

They range in age from six to 14 and qualified for the nationals by placing at the their recent zone level competition. 

The national finals will be held at the Sports Centre in Homebush tomorrow and will see the Tamworth girls facing some strong competition.

They’ll be up against all of the placegetters in their respective age groups from around Australia. 

Being selected for a final of 15 girls is an amazing achievement, coach Leigh Botfield said.

“Gaining a place is the ultimate goal to work towards,” she said.

“It will be a totally new experience and first time for six-year-old fifth place awardee Amelia Newlan.

“Eight-year-old Tori Northey - Calder, who placed first at Zone, will also make her debut in the nationals competition.

“Representing the 11 years section is Amber Shephard after placing fourth at Zone. Prue Davies (2nd) will contest the 13 years and Shelby Botfield-Mohr (1st) and Kiara Northey - Calder (2nd) will be up against the difficult competition of the 14-year-olds. 

“Five-year-old place getters, Charlotte Bird (2nd), Sophia-Rose Markham-Fisher (3rd ) and Zoe Hartigan (4th) will have to wait another year to make the trip to Sydney as only six-year-olds up qualify for the finals.

“This is the perfect opportunity to showcase their talents and we know  they will proudly represent the Tamworth club,” Botfield said. 

The final competition for the Tamworth BJP club was held last Saturday at Calrossy School Hall.
